Twitter has played a massive role on Republic Day 2015 in India. Today was a National Holiday in the country that commemorates the establishment of the Constitution of India.
It was July 1947 when the Indian Independence act was passed in Britain, which was the Declaration of Indian Independence and proclaimed by the Indian National Congress.
Today in India millions will be looking for Republic day offers, flying the flag, searching for Republic Day quotes, images and much more to celebrate. One person celebrating was the President of the United States of America Barack Obama, he was in India where he met with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. They both watched musicians, military displays and even decorated camels. They were in a protective glass enclosed space when on parade.
The Republic Day 2015 annual parade was at Rajpath in Delhi, India. Obama is there on a three-day visit; over on the official White House Twitter there is a lovely image of President Obama throwing flower petals over a monument at Rajghat, which is a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi.
Today the hashtags that were very and still are very popular include #RDaywithObama, #HappyRepublicDay and #ProudIndian, there are many others but these are the best three used the most. Some people cannot join the action in Delhi so they are using Twitter to celebrate.
Barack Obama and Narendra Modi will be answering questions from Twitter as part of the ‘Mann Ki Baat’. Be prepared on January 27 at 8:00PM on all India Radio channels. This is where Twitter users can tweet with the hashtag #MannKiBaat to ask questions.
